Sequels from The Mascot Trilogy. Donte is promoted to the position of Supreme Commander of the spaceships, but he is the one who decides which missions the Lyra will take on. The Lyra is a research and rescue spaceship.
When a scientific company on Planet Oriel illegally creates humans contaminate by animal genes, it uses them to guide and protect colonists on a newly discovered planet. After an accident, the company abandons the experiment and claims the planet is contaminated and therefore uninhabitable. Thirty years later, the colonies are beginning to unite and a young mascot is prophesied to lead them to freedom from Oriel. Donte has no manual or instructions on how to do this. He must depend on his unique skills - and pray it all works out.
A tiny organism does what no one else has been able to do. It backs Donte into a corner and puts him on his knees. Donte cannot rely on his supernatural skills. He must rely on his crew and learn to resolve problems without superpowers.
A futile rebellion turns deadly for the Lyra crew in this episode of the Spaceship Lyra Logs. What is causing the disappearance of miners and troops, and is assisting an uncooperative general worth the risk?
Research and rescue spaceship Lyra responds to a distress signal from planet Arcane and discovers a planet in dire need of assistance. As Supreme Commander, Donte is willing to risk his life to assist, but he has no idea what it will cost all of them.
Oriel is sending an expedition team to planet Opus in preparation for colonization. Dr. Oriana invites Donte to scout for them and, since he and Rianne are no longer together, he accepts. Captain Pacilio's granddaughter is on the team and her rebellious actions wind up getting them both trapped in an underground chamber. Everyone believes they have drowned, but Purlieu isn't ready to give up.
When Fontalo returns to reclaim its property, the mascots, Donte represents Purlieu in a resistance that begins to look futile. He decides the only way Purlieu can be free is if he goes to court on planet Oriel. He has no idea if he will be welcome, but he is willing to risk all in the fulfilment of the prophecy to lead Purlieu to freedom.
Sometimes being the chosen one means taking all the risks. Donte isn't one to shirk his duties, but a ruler must learn to delegate. As the Anialwch connection in a Prophecy, he must learn to deal with unbelievers of all sorts - some who want to eliminate him. He has to learn who is friend and who is foe. Book 2 of The Mascot Trilogy is a struggle to an uncertain end.
A scientific company illegally creates humans contaminated with animal genes. The mascots are placed on a new planet to guide and protect the colonists. After an accident, they abandon their experiment and claim the planet is uninhabitable. For thirty years the colonists and mascots survive on their own. If the scientists return, can they legally reclaim their creations?
